Since she was always wanting to learn more, she was encouraged by the physicians to return to school and in 1999 graduated from the University of Maine with a Master of Science degree in Nursing/ Family Nurse Practitioner and has continued to work in that role at our practice. Denise enjoys seeing patients of all ages.
